CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. - It's been nearly a decade since two Virginia Tech students were murdered.

On Aug. 26, 2009, Heidi Childs, 18, and David Metzler, 19, were shot and killed in the parking lot of Caldwell Fields in Montgomery County.

Both were sophomores at Tech and met before college through their church youth group.

They were both accomplished athletes, played guitar and sang and came from close-knit families from Campbell and Bedford counties

On Friday at 10 a.m., local, state and federal law enforcement will provide an investigative overview and update on the active investigation.

Members of both families will share remarks as well.

10 News will be livestreaming Friday's event.
